How do I find NAICS codes?
NAICS codes are useful to have when trying to find industry information. While not required in most databases, knowing it allows you to get to the info you need *a lot* faster.
There are a lot of ways to find NAICS codes...here are a couple of easy ways:
- U.S. Census Bureau
- Go to the U.S. Census Bureau site;
- click NAICS in the Business & Industry section;
- either search by keyword or click "For 2007 NAICS" under the search boxes on the left. That will allow you to browse through all of the codes and quickly get definitions for each code so you know you're choosing the right one for your industry.
- Duns Million Dollar Database: if you're researching a specific company, look that company up in Duns to see what *they* use as their primary/secondary NAICS codes.
